Maybe you should get involved on the other one too my old friend? Everyone is still at battle stations and ready to rumble again. We will make sure support is gone from anyone that wants to make money off of respect on the web. I’m not sure that will be enough in these times though. If this passes I can only imagine the backlash from what I am reading.

See you out there ;=)

1. "In the… [pro-porn gibberish] …children!"

2. "It… [para-legal gibberish] …MOOT."

3. "The Telecommunications Act… [para-legal gibberish] …(2000)"

1. Well actually, it is Initially the duty of parents to protect children from even government supported inappropriate free speech. In the end, the government must take responsibility for government supported inappropriate free speech and has for nearly a century. Internet wire communications exist today because of the Communications Act of 1934.

2. Free Speech does not include “porn” that is “obscene”. MOOT is a cute legal term but does not begin to describe the “qualified right” you mistakenly find absolute and violated from the First Amendment.

3. The Supreme Court was CLUELESS about internet wire communications in 1996-2000 but is changing. The Supreme Court is not yet composed of internet wire communications era justices and will not be till around 2050. I will be 82 or be dead.

Our Government is nothing but prostitutes to the rich now and have been for the past how many years? Yeah… I can’t call our government a government anymore

Compare democracy 1790-2010
Roughly 649,999 voters per Congressional Representative….
Roughly 33million and 833,285 voters per Supreme Court Justice…

Too late to fix this system in my opinion.

Today is the day the FCC will argue for broadcast decency from 6a-10p

FCC ability to require broadcast decency could be history after today!

I see rape, murder, and every other imaginable crime on plain old network TV every day. I can but a video game in Toys R’ Us and chop peoples heads off all day…

So what needs to be censored on the internet?

If it is copyright infringements why is it that the government is already shutting down any site they want to for that at will now?

I say it is the peoples voice they want to censor.

(52) Wire Communications

The term “wire communication” or “communication by wire” means the transmission of writing, signs, signals, pictures, and sounds of all kinds by aid of wire, cable, or other like connection between the points of origin and reception of such transmission, including all instrumentalities, facilities, apparatus, and services (among other things, the receipt, forwarding, and delivery of communications) incidental to such transmission.

Hmmm why are internet wire communications not regulated by the FCC?

OK, I watched that video. It was interesting in many ways. Back in the day of my young, old age, I used much of that software, then quickly learned to use aftermarket versions of it. The malware to download on those places was crazy.

Though I know Cnet/ZDnet is huge business, and I rarely look to them for good advice anymore, why did they publish that article I posted above?

Hell…most of us know big money just about runs this country now, but too many pieces just don’t fit with that puzzle.

To say that all those named in that video are all in on it together with government in a conspiracy is like saying it is almost hopeless now.

I followed the early legal battles between file sharing and their enemies.

The format of that video seems to be…marketing their videos too…

I did learn a few things from it though.

Thank you for reading the brief. Filtration is a hoax used to keep pornography flowing freely on the Internet wires. That is all filtration has ever been.
censorship is NOT misguided as all US TV and radio is censored. Google Inc actually faught me in court for the last three years.
USC 47 § 232 (proposed) would completely solve the illegal free porn-Internet and balance the budget.

Here is a link to a video on YouTube, http://youtu.be/WJIuYgIvKsc .Up-loaded by jeepersmedia.
Who is doing what here, this video tells me that the people that want this bill are the one that put the sharing software out there two begin with and helped user’s learn how two use it even put copy writhed files on there sites for user’s two download. So that is what the video charges.
Please go see it send it two others.

or radio” was removed at each “__” so you anonymous SOPA whiners would recognize the malfeasant FCC but “or radio” would cover the walkie-talkie AND wireless.

“… a rapid, efficient, Nation-wide, and world-wide wire __ communication service with adequate facilities at reasonable charges, for the purpose of the national defense, for the purpose of promoting safety of life and property through the use of wire __ communications, and for the purpose of securing a more effective execution of this policy by centralizing authority heretofore granted by law to several agencies and by granting additional authority with respect to interstate and foreign commerce in wire __ communication , …” 47 USC §151

The laws ALREADY PASSED have been clear since 1934.
Telecommunications by wire or radio is all the Internet ever was.

@Geowil

I am a photographer with Berne Convention rights maliciously violated by NameMedia Inc and Google Inc. These rights were marginally tacked into the unconstitutional copy[rite] Act at 17 USC §106A. District Court ruled that these rights could not be violated online as was in egregious error and is appealed and pending. All search engines stopped returning my nude and figurenude art except Google Inc. Microsoft Corporation resumed after the court error. During this three-year litigation, Google Inc scanned 17-70 million books without concern for copy[rites] in New York libraries and uploaded three additional figurenudes done by me while facing me in court. Google took down these book photos. NameMedia Inc stopped display of my stolen nudes after months in court and the second DMCA notice.

I have individually done most of the things this bill can do in the last three years. Stopping piracy will not happen but the costs to pirates can be made higher.

Threats invalidate and reveal motives of anti-SOPA criminals. The anti-copy[rite] and anti-SOPA type here forget Google Inc being charged HALF-a-BILLION for already violating the principles of SOPA.

The future ruling of the Supreme Court in FCC v Fox et al, 10-1293 was apparent after the oral arguments. Transcript PDF
Decency regulations will be upheld but may require some adjustments.

The trouble with SOPA is that SOPA requires purchase of copy[rites] and does not address the fact that the Copy[rite] Act in unconstitutional on its face.
